Confidence is beauty

Hey there lovely people that are reading my blog, it's me again and today I bring to you a post that's a bit different from my usual outfit of the day post. Quite a few people have asked me where I get the confidence to wear what I like, even if it's considered weird and unconventional by some people. So I decided to write about it today, since I don't have a photographer this week. This will mainly be a post about style confidence, but wearing clothes that make you feel attractive and comfortable in front of other people will generally boost your self esteem. Let's get started.
The first thing that I want to point out that most people, and by that I mean random people that you don't know on the street, don't really care as much as you think. They aren't really bothered by your appearance, and even if they are you should be flattered that they just wasted a couple of minutes of their life thinking about you. Look at it this way, they aren't a part of your everyday life, so why should you allow them to affect it? That's right, you shouldn't. They don't matter. And for all you know, they might just be admiring your outfit or just your confidence in being yourself.
The next thing I want to address are the people that are close to you. In this category are your friends and family, so the people that in fact do matter and are a big part of your life, so you can't just ignore them. If they are showing a great deal of disapproval, they aren't being good friends to you. I have friends that don't necessarily like everything I wear, but that doesn't mean that they criticize me because of it. They accept that I'm different, and so should your friends. It's not really their business and there is no reason for them to treat you any different because of what you are wearing. It's the same thing if people that are suppose to be your friends treat you differently because of your weight or any other physical aspects of yourself. So if they can't accept you for who you are, find people who will, because you deserve it! 
When it comes to people at school, they might give you dirty looks and think of your style as silly or stupid, who are they to judge? There aren't any rules. There is no right or wrong, there is just being yourself. Imagine a world where everyone looked like clones of each other...that would be crazy. You are being yourself, and that's the best person you can be. If they notice you, that means that you're making a statement and if you want to be successful you have to get noticed. If you want to just blend in and stay in the background your whole life, that's fine too.
Another presumption is that you can't wear something because you're a certain body type. Society gives you this idea that it's only okay to wear some clothes if you have a stick thin model figure and only some people can pull it off. And it's not even true. It's just society telling us that we can't show our body off and be proud of how we look if we aren't slim. But if you want to wear short shorts and crop tops, go ahead! We just have to start with ourselves and change our own perception of things. 

Okay, I just realized that this turned out to be a bit longer than I imagined. But I really hope you read all of it and that it helps you at least a little bit. 

You are beautiful, remember that! xx

And I just wanted to add a photo, so this post wouldn't be too plain, so here's a photo with my lovely girls:

She moves in her own way

I'm back once again and surprise, surprise...I have another OOTD for you guys! And it's a coincidence, but this is the third post that will be posted on a Thursday, so maybe we'll just make this a regular thing. I wore this outfit yesterday, as many who have seen me already know. These photos were made in quite a hurry, because UroŇ° had to catch a train and I had geography, but to be honest I'm pretty satisfied with them!:D So let's start:

On I have my lovely high waisted shorts that I got in H&M, but originally they were a bit longer on the leg so I just cut them off. On the upper part I have just a basic black blouse and my faux leather jacket also from H&M. On my feet I have my T.U.K. creepers for a change and I got those off Amazon. On my nails (if you can see) I have my favourite Bourjois nail polish in the shade Lavande esquisse and it's basically this gorgeous lavender colour (if you couldn't figure that out from the name).

One more school week coming to an end and it's finally holiday time! I was so excited today when I finished my last test before the holidays, because that means I can relax and enjoy a bit today. I have some catching up to do with my favourite TV series, because I've been studying all the time. But it's paid off, since my marks are just the way I want them to be. So school on the side, everything else has been pretty much great this week (except for maybe the hours of sleep I got). In that moment when something bad happens it always seems like everything is just black and white, but you soon come to realise that that's not the case. So just smile, the happiness will follow sooner or later. Oh god, I'm just babbling here. 
I don't know why, but I always get so excited when I order a piece of clothing online. I'm like a little kid on Christmas eve, I check my mail every day for any updates and tell my dad: "Text me if it get's here!" So as you can imagine, yes I ordered something. It's a beautiful black faux fur coat and I've wanted one for so so soooo long, but I could never find the one. Too much excitement over one coat you say? It just may be so, but I don't care. You'll see it on my blog as soon as it get's cooler outside! I can't believe I'm actually looking forward to it haha :)

I'm thinking about replacing next week's outfit of the day with a post about confidence, because I won't have a photographer, so let me know what you think.
That'll be all for today, I hope you enjoyed this post and you'll hear from me soon!

Love you guys! xx

Bitter Sweet Symphony

I'm back and I have another OOTD for you today. This is an outfit I wore yesterday, so that means Wednesday I suppose. I was really happy to catch some sun this time, because the weather has been pretty shitty here the past few weeks. So without further ado, here is my outfit.

I'm wearing a tiger print studded sweater that I got off Romwe and underneath I have a pale pink dress from H&M. In the morning I also had a black biker jacket on top, but it got warm enough that I could manage without it. On my feet I have my beloved Y.R.U. platforms that I've been wearing non stop since I got them. I made the flower crown myself and my glasses are Diesel.

Much like the title I feel like my week has been a bitter sweet symphony. More bitter than sweet to be totally honest, but it had it's ups. You can get so comfortable in a relationship that you forget everything could change in a blink of an eye. You forget that nothing lasts forever. And than something happens and you start questioning yourself. Are you really the person you thought you were? Or are you really someone completely different, someone you'd promised yourself you'd never be. You probably have no idea what I'm rambling about. But it doesn't matter anyway. I need a break from life, but I don't think that's possible so I'll just stop confusing you and post this already.

Thank you so much for reading, it means a lot (even if you skipped that last part)! Love you guys! xx

A breath of fresh air

Let's jump right into it! Here is my first OOTD and it's the outfit I wore to school today. 

Photos taken by:

I'm wearing a beautiful Zara knit houndstooth sweater, a black pencil skirt that is also from Zara, a denim gilet from H&M and Y.R.U. Quozmo Hi shoes that I got off Nastygal. I accessorized it with my black beanie and on my fingers I only have a gold ring that I got from my Grandma and red nail polish.

The photos were taken by my boyfriend, so of course I have to give him some credit! I'm not gonna ramble today, because I still have some homework to do, but you'll hear from me soon!

Love ya all! xx


This is it, I'm finally doing it! I've been wanting to create my own blog for so so long, but I've never really done it. I don't know why. Probably because I wasn't sure of what to write about. So, I've decided that the  main theme of my blog will be fashion, my outfits or how I style different types of clothes, but I'll also include some bits and bobs about my life. And I've just realized I haven't properly introduced myself yet. My name is Ingrid Hrovat and I'm 16 years old. I live in a small town in Slovenia (for those of you that don't know, Slovenia is a county in southern Central Europe) with my parents and my little brother. At the moment I'm in my second year of gymnasium. I can also tell you that I enjoy running, drawing and most of all writing in my free time. This all for now, I hope you enjoy my blog and I'm looking forward to seeing your responses. 

Lots of love to all of you that are reading this! xx
